The Clark County Museum hosts a new exhibit called, "The Beauty of Purpose: Utilitarian Arts of the Paiute People," through Aug. 25, 2019, inside its Heritage Gallery at 1830 S. Boulder Highway. The exhibit features baskets, arrowheads, stone artifacts and other native Paiute crafts that are admired for their beauty and artistry today but were created with for specific uses. The Paiutes, a tribe that occupied the territory encompassing part of the Colorado River, most of Southern Nevada and parts of Southern California and Utah, made baskets from plants and other materials that were available in the area and used them for a variety of purposes including harvesting and planting, storing food and water, and trapping fish and birds. Stone was carved into points for arrows, or metates for grinding, or bowls, shaft straiteners, and many other items. The Clark County Museum's indoor exhibit hall features displays about Southern Nevada history from prehistoric to modern times. The 30-acre property also has an outdoor collection of restored historic buildings that depict daily life from important periods in local history. Offerings include a wedding chapel, print shop, railroad cottage and several homes all open for self-guided tours. Admission is $1 for children and seniors and $2 for adults. Museum hours are 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. seven days a week.
